Joe Mooney is averaging 13.2 points and 3.4 rebounds while Ezra Manjon is averaging 12.2 points and 3.2 rebounds.

Will update with trends once they're released.  

The Hawai'i Rainbow Warriors are not the same team on the road that they are at home, where they lose by an average of 7.9 points and shoot just 38.6 percent from the field and 31.3 percent from deep. The UC Davis Aggies win at home by an average of 11.7 points and shoot 49.7 percent from the field. The Hawai'i Rainbow Warriors are 3-5 against the spread on the road and 11-15 against the spread on the season. The UC Davis Aggies are 5-4 against the spread at home and 17-11 against the spread on the season. I'll eat the reasonable chalk with the Aggies at home.
